I say this, meaning in both good and bad experiences. This was a good experience though! On the set of Da Vinci’s Demons, one of the runners took my card and I met up with him the other day. It was very interesting. It is great to talk to someone in the industry, because you always learn something new! This time around, we were talking about one of his scripts that he is trying to finish, and it is great to see how someone else’s mind works when it comes to story telling. We had a good laugh and I do look forward to meeting him again!

So yesterday we wrapped Time Gal. It has been an excellent experience filming with people with different ideas and ways of working. I have certainly learned a lot and will cherish the connections I made with the cast and crew. I had a lot of fun portraying the character of Jelena and I feel I have a very strong connection with her. The lessons I learned filming the sisters relationships and realising the strength they have because of it, has taught me more about how to behave with my own sister, who did play a huge inspiration in my development of the character. I am very much looking forward to seeing the end result and wish all the best of luck to post-production!

Today and yesterday, I have been rehearsing the short film Time Gal. I have met Emily Jordan-Patrikios and Ray Hill who will be playing opposite me, and the director Ather Chaudhary. They have been such useful days. We have all become clear on our backstories and the journey of the script. What a rare opportunity to have 2 full days to rehearse and create the necessary connections between the characters before we get on set. I am very excited to start filming tomorrow! It should be good.

Yesterday I returned from my 2 week visit home to South Africa. It was a great experience. I really enjoyed spending some quality time with my family, but I also enjoyed seeing what might have become of my life if I was to have stayed there. That is a very interesting thought. It provided me with a lot more motivation to succeed. Seeing the drive my family have and gaining such support from them really was a great lift! I am very excited that I am where I am and have all the possibilities that come with it. Looking forward to the future!

So, turns out I got little part in one of the 10 year anniversary It’s My Shout films, in conjunction with YMCA Barry. We filmed on the 23rd - 25th July. It was incredible fun. The makeup was the best part. I met some great people and wish everyone the best of luck for the future. It was great to work on set with fantastic people! Thanks everyone!
